The name Gard’Ann comes from the word Garden and the owner’s name Anne Marie. The word with its French sounding is a fine reference to the famous and characteristic French confectionery.
The interior is a contemporary interpretation of the characteristic grand café feeling of the early 20th century. The counter was pastel green originally, so I chose the whole space to be painted with this colour, apart from the service corridor which got the colour of pastel pink. I think pastel colours bring patisseries with macarons and other French cakes to the consumers’ mind, so I tried to create a good complementarity between the deep green, the golden tones and the pastels in the place. The whole interior is elegant in a lovely way with a little “French Bohemian” twist.
